It’s not pleasant to talk about, but it’s a fact: dogs will sometimes eat cat feces out of the litter box. Why? No one seems to know for certain. Dogs are not ﬁnicky eaters (well, duh!), and they will sometimes eat other dogs’ feces or even their own, and they seem to be curious enough to sample any kind of organic matter. People who have both a cat and a dog in the home ﬁnd the habit to be an incentive to keep the litter box scooped out as often as possible.
